Chalk Talk: Should My Child Take AP Classes?
AP classes are advanced placement programs offered to upper high school students. The purpose of these classes is to prepare students for the intensity of college courses. At the end of the school year, high school students taking an AP class take an AP exam. If they pass this exam with a 3-5, they could be exempt from taking a similar course in college. AP courses offer a fantastic opportunity for students to get a jump-start on their college education. But before students sign up for AP classes, they should consider what they want to study in college. Not all AP courses offer direct advantages to the student. For example, taking an AP government course in high school might not be as beneficial as taking AP Calculus if the student is planning to pursue a degree in Mathematics or Engineering in college. Students should enroll in the AP classes that will offer the best transition between their high school and college education.
